With over 20 years delivering Investment Administration software, Financial Risk Solutions (FRS) is a trusted technology partner to life assurance, wealth and asset management firms worldwide. Led by an expert team of actuaries, compliance and IT specialists, our clients license FRS software to help navigate the ever-changing challenges of growth, regulatory pressures and competition in the industry.
FRS was established in 1999 by four senior-level actuaries who had spent years on the other side of the desk working with different investment administration systems. Unable to find an efficient system they began building numerous ‘workarounds’ and disjointed systems and quickly realised that there was a tremendous opportunity to develop a software system that could solve complex problems for life assurance companies.
Launching FRS, the founding actuaries combined their industry know-how and investment product knowledge with the skills of leading software specialists to develop FRS’s flagship product: InvestPro.
Delivered on-premise or cloud-hosted, InvestPro securely automates multiple complex fund administration processes including unit-pricing, cash allocation and rebalancing; oversight and validation of operational activity performed by outsourced partners; and in Europe monitoring and reporting for PRIIPs, KID requirements, and Pillar III asset reporting for Solvency II.
Today the award-winning InvestPro platform is relied on by a large number of blue-chip financial services and BPO clients to reduce operational costs, increase efficiencies and mitigate risk in the manufacture and management of investment products. More than 150,000 funds are managed on the InvestPro platform.
FRS is part of the Constellation Software Inc. group and headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, with offices in London, Hong Kong and Sydney.
